Wristbands

If you’re going to the festival, you will need to purchase a $10 wristband which is a cover charge for the street party.  Valid I.D. for those 21 and over required.  Wristbands are required for those drinking alcoholic beverages outside on public streets in the festival zone, which is from River Street to Broughton Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to East Broad Street. If you’re looking to join the party for more than one day, then you must buy a separate wristband each day. Wristbands are not required inside of establishments serving alcohol.
